Gino Van Ossel - Author of 'Retail. De digitale hysterie voorbij' & Professor at Vlerick Business School


Retailers are struggling to make their omni-channel strategy work, with only 10% achieving a positive return on investment. As victims of digital hysteria, many have overinvested in expensive technologies that add little value. Others suffer from inertia and underinvest in their digital future.
To address this challenge, prof. Gino Van Ossel introduces the concept of opti-channel retail. He offers retailers, branded goods manufacturers and service companies a framework to strike the right balance between customer centricity, competitiveness and a positive cash flow. With numerous examples and practical checklists he helps you to develop a winning strategy, beyond the digital hysteria.

Dado Van Peteghem - Author of 'Corporate Venturing' & Founding Partner/Co-CEO - Duval Union Consulting


Accelerate Growth through Collaboration with Startups

This is not the hype story of how cool startups are and why you should invest in them with a fund or setup an accelerator. Corporate Venturing is so much more than CVC - corporate venture capital.

The aim of this book is to provide insights in the different strategies and tactics to accelerate innovation and growth through collaboration, as well as plenty of cases as examples where these methods are successfully applied. This is not a book for people that are looking for complex innovation theories around venturing. Rather it’s a no-nonsense, ready-to-apply comprehensive guide for creating and reviewing your corporate venturing strategy as a strategic instrument to thrive in this fast changing world.

The book will provide guidance, insights, perspective and inspiration for anyone that has an interests in corporate venturing as a strategy to accelerate growth. Whether you are a large corporate or an upcoming player in the market.

Consumer Connection Survey - Sophie Docx - Marketing & Communication consultant

We all know we shouldn’t use our own behaviour as a reference for our target group. But do we succeed in avoiding this in reality? We base ourselves on research, analysis and data, but when interpreting we also rely on our gut feeling. Research agency Profacts launched a study, commissioned by BD myShopi and in collaboration with UBA (Unie van Belgische Adverteerders), in order to investigate the behaviour of marketeers as well as the behaviour of “average Belgian consumers” and moreover the marketeers’ perception of consumer behaviour.

Marketing consultant Sophie Docx will take you through the key results and offer some surprising insights.
